Program Note
Despite its title, Alexander Sokurov’s Fairytale is not the kind of fairy tale for children that we normally think of. It is a horror film and a political film in which monsters from the twentieth century, including Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin, wander around in limbo. The experimental spirit of Alexander Sokurov, the Russian master who directed Father and Son (2002), Russian Ark (2003), and Faust (2011), is undoubtedly displayed in this bizarre masterpiece. The director digitally works on the archival footage of the dictators and then directs them like living actors. Most of the conversations among the delusional tyrants treated in post-synchronization are terrible, but they also create a comical effect, reminiscent of that of Chaplin’s The Great Dictator (1940). At times recalling the work of German film director F.W. Murnau and Italian poet Dante, Fairytale is a warning message. "The delusional dictators are dead, but their demonic ideas are still corrupting the world." (SEO Seunghee)
